Writers Festival 14 - 19 May 2019

2018 Open Book

The 2019 programme will be announced on 13 March.

The Festival brings the world to Auckland every May.
This year we staged 213 public events, gathering together 230 of the world’s best writers and thinkers with 75,000 Festival goers, to celebrate the world of books and ideas.
